My apologies for the lack of posts lately – things have been comfortably busy, with client projects, and a few other endeavours, one of which is a new advanced Flash course I will be instructing at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) in January and February ’04.
If you’re an intermediate Flash developer in Edmonton or area, check it out – it might be “the course to take your game to another level”. It also helps that NAIT is running it for an amazingly good price.

Grant Skinner to Deliver FlashMX2004 Course at NAIT
Eagerly anticipated upgrading opportunity for Flash developers launches in Edmonton

Entitled, FlashMX2004 Enterprise-level Development, the course will help prepare intermediate Flash developers for the growing enterprise-level sector of the production market. Students will be introduced to innovations in the MX Professional 2004 version of Macromediaï¿½s flagship Flash application. More than just providing an understanding of the tool and advanced programming with ActionScript 2.0, Grant will be imparting production management skills such as planning and team coordination strategies, usability considerations and post-deployment evaluation techniques.
If you are a serious Flash developer with prior experience using the Flash IDE (Integrated Development Environment) and ActionScript, this is the course to take your game to a higher level.
